I thought I would make a thread to put new words and phrases that I have had to translate. It will give me something to help learn Spanish if I am at some other terminal. If you can add yours that will also help me.

Pensé que haría un hilo para poner nuevas palabras y las frases. Me dará algo ayudar a aprender español si estoy en alguna otra terminal. Si usted puede agregar suyo que también me ayudará.

ETA planted a bomb in Torremolinos. It was early in the morning and their was only a sixteen year old British tourist in the are. He/she was treated for "aturdimiento". I thought thtat might be what I would need trating for if a bomb went off close to me, but it actually means bewilderment or daze, I suppose that is the same as shock.

I looked up some insults and then remembered this was family site.

El burro sabe mas que tu ___________ The donkey knows more than you

Is probably OK.
